Convenience and speed are crucial in the modern digital world. Today’s consumers rely on online businesses for everything from food and furnishings to home goods and accessories, so the days when online shopping was limited to clothing are long gone. But as the popularity of online shopping increases, so do emissions and the usage of single-use shipping plastics, as well as other irksome packaging materials like packing peanuts and cardboard boxes.

Fortunately, there are many eco-friendly online businesses available for consumers who like the convenience of online purchasing but would rather stay away from merchants with dubious sustainability credentials. We’ve located stores that are environmentally conscious and decrease extra packaging waste, offset their emissions, or contribute to other charitable causes.

Here are the top eco-friendly online stores that are striving for a better planet for us all.

Earth Hero

With clothing, accessories, home goods, tech products, beauty and personal care items, pet supplies, outdoor gear, and even travel items, Earth Hero is pretty much a one-stop shop for all things eco-friendly. The company only sells products that are sourced, manufactured, and shipped in eco-friendly ways, making it our top overall choice. It only works with manufacturers using better materials like upcycled cotton, recycled rubber, and sustainably harvested wood.

The company also has a partnership with CarbonFund and offset its carbon footprint. It uses recycled, recyclable, and compostable packaging made in the United States. Check out the “Zero Waste” section for sustainable essentials like reusable water bottles, stainless steel straws, and reusable food containers, and don’t miss the audio and tech options like compostable phone cases, eco-friendly laptop cases, and wooden charging docks.

Which Brands Are The Most Eco-friendly?

Fast fashion is one of the most polluting sectors in the world, despite the fact that when we think of pollution, we typically associate it with large oil firms and coal mine haze. Aside from harming our world, an excessive amount of clothes is produced at the expense of farmers and other producers due to chemicals and waste.

Thankfully, there are lots of eco-friendly clothing companies using eco-friendly manufacturing processes. The best organic and sustainable clothing is produced by these manufacturers using organic cotton, upcycled natural materials, and low-impact dyes.

Trying to overcome a fast fashion habit can seem overwhelming, but switching to eco-friendly apparel doesn’t have to happen overnight. Start small, keeping these environmentally friendly clothing brands in mind for the next time you get the itch to update your closet.

1. Patagonia

For durable outdoor clothing and gear that won’t harm the environment, Patagonia is number one. From moisture-wicking tees to water-repellant hiking shorts that won’t chafe (not to mention their famous fleeces and insulated jackets!), the brand is our go-to for high-performing and high-quality clothing for all our favorite things to do outside. With 98% of their clothing line boasting recycled materials, plus the brand’s environmental impact transparency and sustainability initiatives, you can feel good about supporting a company that truly values the planet.

2. tentree

As a certified B Corp, tentree upholds the highest standards for people and the planet in its manufacturing process. As the name suggests, the company plants 10 trees for each item purchased and has a goal of planting one billion trees by 2030. (The company has planted over 70 million trees to date!) The clothing is perfect for the activewear & loungewear lover (we love the men’s joggers!), and everything is made from varying sustainable fabrics like organic cotton and Tencel and crafted in Europe and India.

3. Pact

Loved for its line of basics, Pact knows that going organic has benefits for consumers, farmers, and the planet. The brand’s organic cotton clothing uses up to 81 percent less water than traditional cotton, avoids the use of chemicals, and is supremely softer than the alternative—a true win-win for everyone involved. A personal favorite can be loungewear and sleepwear, engineered for all-day (and night!) comfort, leaving you feeling comfortable and confident.

4. MATE the Label

For clean, conscious fashion that prioritizes comfort and sustainability, we’re looking to MATE the Label. The women-founded brand creates cozy essentials from natural fibers using circular, ethical manufacturing that is good for the planet, the people who make the garments, and the people who wear them. From joggers to leggings to sweatshirts and more, elevate your daily favorites with these gorgeous, cozy basics.

5. For Days

For Days is creating apparel for (better) days. With a focus on zero-waste clothing, closed-loop systems, and circular fashion, this eco-friendly brand is all about quality basics that can be returned at a later time and recycled into new pieces. In exchange, you’ll receive a swap credit that you can use for new clothes so you can upgrade your closet, too. Customers especially love the “For All” collection of unisex apparel, the ‘90s inspired tees, and lounge-friendly rompers—mostly made with organic cotton or recycled terry, and sewn in Morocco.

6. Avocado

This newly launched fashion brand comes from the beloved natural bedding company Avocado, so you can expect the same impressive eco-friendly standards. The B Corp (that’s also Climate Neutral Certified) crafts lush loungewear and super-soft basics, like cardigans, joggers, hoodies, tees, and more. They’re made from organic and sustainably grown cotton, biodegradable modal, and alpaca fiber sourced from a regenerative farm in Peru—and they’re all crafted with nontoxic dyes.

7. Reformation

Reformation is a TGT fave for their sustainable, on-trend fashion that uses recycled and regenerative fabrics to create looks we love. The LA-based brand creates some of our favorite occasion dresses and staple denim pieces from upcycled and sustainable materials, and even recently launched its own recycled resale program, RefRecycling, so they can buy back your old Ref pieces to be created into new styles. Love that! We also love that they make it easy to learn about their sustainability practices and environmental impact reports by publishing everything on their website.

8. Thought

Want to go green (and every color in between) with your closet? Thought has got the goods: This UK brand’s eco-friendly fabrics like hemp, bamboo, and GOTS-certified organic cotton are made with sustainability in mind. And Thought’s clothes are top quality, too, so you don’t need to wash them after just one wear. Some clients are obsessed with the bright colors, stunning knits, and stylish patterns—and the fact that their price points are so reasonable.
